- 250 g (~8 3/4 oz) butter
- 120 g (~2/3 cup) sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 250 g (~8 3/4 oz) cottage cheese
- 15 g (~1 1/3 tbsp) baking powder
- 250 g (~2 cups) flour
Thoroughly grease and flour a 24 cm / 9″ bundt cake tin. Preheat the oven to 180°C/356°F.
In a small bowl stir together flour and baking powder.
In a separate bowl cream softened butter with sugar and vanilla. Add eggs – one at a time – and whisk until fully incorporated. Finally mix in cottage cheese and flour. Scoop the batter in the prepared bundt pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Turn out the bundt cake onto a wire rack and let it cool completely before serving.
